Arsenal have announced that Tyreece John-Jules has joined Blackpool for the 2021-22 season.
The striker will spend the duration of the upcoming campaign with the Championship side, having previously had loan spells with Donacaster Rovers and Lincoln City.
The 20 year old has yet to make an official senior appearance for the club, but has been consistent goalscorer at youth level. Daniel Ballard, now on loan at Millwall, spent last season at Blackpool too, so there is a recent connection between the clubs.
Seasiders boss Neil Critchley says, “We really value the continued working relationship with Arsenal and would like to thank them for trusting us with Tyreece’s development.
“I’ve followed Tyreece’s progress for some time now, both with Arsenal and for the England youth teams. He’s an attacking player who brings plenty of creativity, whether that be with goals or assists, and he will fit in with the work ethic we have here in the squad.
“He’s clearly benefitted from his previous loan experiences in League One and is now ready for this step up to the Championship with us. We’re looking forward to seeing him in a tangerine shirt.”
Best of luck to him at Bloomfield Road.
Meanwhile, reports from north of the border suggest that promising defender Harry Clarke is set to join Ross County on loan.
The SPL kicks off this weekend, but it remains to be seen if that deal will completed in time for him to take part in the game against St.Johnstone on Saturday.
Gd luck to him, Blackpool are a decent side so if he gets a lot of game time can only be good
On the right road. Top end of the first Division now in a Newly Promoted Championship side, one we know we can trust with our players.
Keep doing it JJ ! The future’s bright. The future (for now) is Orange!
Decent destination for a loan, I’m glad he got a championship team. Will get him used to the day-in day-out workings of English football. Much more than, say, Marseille…
Good luck to him there, hope he can demand a starting spot!
A lot of talent, just needs to retain his fitness and get on a roll, all that sea air should help.
A promising player with good offensive qualities and link-up play. Hopefully his time at Blackpool can help him hone his finishing. It’s great to see another Arsenal player loaned to Blackpool, hopefully it’s a partnership that can continue.
I’m optimistic that he’ll help them stay up after their promotion.
I once watched a game broadcast from Ross county. What a rustic setting. HC will be motivated to improve quickly
Are they still a basket case?
I hope John-Jules ends up making our first team, he has a badass name.
This guy has got to become known as ‘The Judge’
*Judge Jules, aka Julius O’Riordan. Top drawer old school Club DJ, a Gooner and a gentleman.
I so hope Cat’s nephew makes it with us, boys from the dwarf!
